Think about different, exciting, fun and SAFE places you can enjoy a book.

Friday 29th September - KS2 Virtual reality experience
Each KS2 child were given the opportunity to take part in a Virtual Reality experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip around the world during the virtual reality workshop. We visited the seven modern wonders of the world and marvelled at the landscape around them and the beauty of the landmarks themselves. We found it helpful how Stuart, who lead the sessions, gave us interesting facts to extend our knowledge! Did you know that the Taj Mahal took 20,000 workers 20 years to build and the Colosseum in Rome could hold 80,000 spectators. We loved the fantastic quality of the pictures and the 360o rotation so we could fully appreciate the sites. The images gave us a fantastic understanding of the wonderfully beautiful word we live in, and places many of us will never visit. We also expanded our horizons and looked at different cultures and sites of outstanding natural beauty, such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, palaces in Moscow and the Great Coral Reef in Australia. It has inspired and excited us to learn more about the world as part of our Globe Trotters topic, which we are now fully immersed in!
